– It was an eventful day at the NFL Combine on Thursday though not as eventful as I would’ve preferred. Generally, the players that people want to talk to all make it through the media room on the scheduled day. Sometimes, a few slip through the cracks but Thursday wasn’t quite as bountiful as hoped.
– For those that have been following along all day, you heard from guys like UNC OG Jonathan Cooper, Texas A&M OT Luke Joeckel, Central Michigan OT Eric Fisher and many more. But, alas, a number of players we hoped to catch up to did not make it through. That list includes OT Menelik Watson, OT D.J. Fluker, G Chance Warmack and TE Tyler Eifert.
– We’ll try to catch up to them tomorrow if they come through but Rams coach Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead are expected to come through at 2 and 1 (EST) tomorrow. So we’ll play it by ear. Still hoping to write about Watson and Fluker as well as Eifert. The homepage now has a story on the value of guards like Cooper and Warmack and I’ll look to update it with quotes from Warmack tomorrow if he comes through.
– Workouts don’t begin until Saturday but tomorrow figures to be a busy one.
– In addition to the guys mentioned above, the skill position guys will be coming through and we’ll look to catch up with some of them in addition to Fisher and Snead. Tomorrow’s feature stories will be all Rams, all the time and then we’ll get back into players on Saturday. But don’t worry, we’ll keep updating this blog with comments from prospects tomorrow as well.
– That’s all for now. Thanks for reading.
